Biodiversity and Infrastructure Synergies and Opportunities for European Transport Networks

Start date: 01.01.2021

Duration: 36 months

Coordinator: CERTH/HIT

Budget: 3.56 M€


The BISON project identifies and describes current good practices and new technologies, including nature-based solutions to integrate biodiversity into transport infrastructure, and new emerging trends to be addressed in the current scenario of climate change and its effects on biodiversity and transport.

It aims to produce a Strategic Research and Deployment Agenda (SRDA). To build it, it integrates contributions from stakeholders from industry, transport authorities, academic sector, and environmental agencies. The objective is to identify multidisciplinary research needs based on the gaps that will be highlighted in relation to the current state of knowledge.

The SRDA will answer to the short to long term research questions as well as regional and pan-European challenges highlighted by the BISON project.

This project, led by a consortium of 39 European members and associated countries, aims to tackle the integration of biodiversity with the development of infrastructure, including roads, railways, waterways, airports, ports, or energy transport networks.
